I've started with Re-17 under 120 NBTs but am having trouble getting to manual velocity before pressure signs.


Murphy was a grunt.

Yep... H4350 is what most of the PRS guys use and I use.

Varget actually works well up to and including 130gr bullets. With 130gr Berger AR Hybrids, I worked up to stupid high velocities, which I won’t repeat here, before seeing any primer flattening or ejector swipe. I am currently shooting the same bullet at about 2910 with Varget. I haven’t tried it behind 120s yet but am confident it would be fine.

I have a friend, he runs Varget in his. Like you say, very good velocity with tight groups.

Rl-17, and 16 both look like they have potential.

So does 760 and ADI-2209, which is H4350.

Code
Cartridge          : 6.5 Creedmoor Hornady
Bullet             : .264, 100, Nosler BalTip 26100
Useable Case Capaci: 51.428 grain H2O = 3.339 cm³
Cartridge O.A.L. L6: 2.800 inch = 71.12 mm
Barrel Length      : 24.0 inch = 609.6 mm

Predicted Data for Indicated Charges of the Following Powders.
Matching Maximum Pressure: 62000 psi, or 427 MPa
or a maximum loading ratio or filling of 110 %
These calculations refer to your specified settings in QuickLOAD 'Cartridge Dimensions' window.
C A U T I O N : any load listed can result in a powder charge that falls below minimum suggested
loads or exceeds maximum suggested loads as presented in current handloading manuals. Understand
that all of the listed powders can be unsuitable for the given combination of cartridge, bullet
and gun. Actual load order can vary, depending upon lot-to-lot powder and component variations.
USE ONLY FOR COMPARISON !

85 loads produced a Loading Ratio below user-defined minimum of 75%. These powders have been skipped.

I tried several powders.......R16, W760, IMR4350, and H4350. All were accurate loads, but the H4350 was just a tad better.

In my testing, a very accurate load in four different 6.5CM rifles has been 39 grains of Varget in Hornady cases ignited with CCI 200 primers under Sierra 120 spitzers or Nosler 120 Ball.Tips or Nosler 123 HPBT Custom Comps. All four rifles would hold 5-shot (NOT 3-shots) groups under 1 MOA (most under .75 moa) and the velocities measured with my Oehler varied from 2750 to 2800 fps.


Pursuit may be, it seems to me, perfect without possession.

As Hondo says......Varget and 120's work very well for me, as well as RL16.


There is nothing that enters a man from outside which can defile him; but the things which come out of him, those are the things that defile a man.

My favorite load for 65 CM is the 120 gr. Ballistic Tip over 39.5 gr. of Varget, F210M primer all in Hornady brass. I get a tad over 2900 fps and great accuracy. As always, work up to that load. It’s fine in my Fieldcraft.

I know I’m not taking advantage of the heavy bullet/long range capabilities of the cartridge, but it works great for my needs.


If we live long enough, we all have regrets...and the regrets that nag at us the most are the ones in which we know we had a choice.
